Cuisinart DBM-8 doesn't grind ONLY needed cups...it grinds the whole hopper. Is this what automatic shut off means?

SOURCE: Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill stopped grindin

We are on our second and last machine; after this DBM 8 goes out, I am going to find the most basic grinder I can and stick with it. That said, I fixed ours by removing the clear plastic reservoir where the ground coffee ends up, and then removing the build-up of coffee grounds around the exit chute where the ground beans enter the reservoir.
So, slide the reservoir out, just as you would when emptying it in to your coffee maker and set it aside. Have a flashlight ready when you tilt the grinder forward. On the back side you will see the hole where the ground beans empty into the reservoir. Take a toothpick and get rid of all the clay-like coffee reside that has built-up around that hole. Use a can of dusting air, if possible, (the aerosol "can" type used to blow dust particles from your computer) and blow away all possible ground coffee residue in the hole and around it. This will allow the reservoir to seat snug and flush again. This process fixed ours and I don't know why for sure, other than I suspect, the clay like build-up of coffee grounds, over time prevents the reservoir from seating properly and it has to seat perfectly to work. Good luck.

SOURCE: coffee grinder not working

My burr grinder also stops if the ground spout (where the coffee shoots out) is clogged. I use my grinder for an espresso machine so i always have the setting on the finest and so with the oils and the fine grind it clogs this spout pretty often. I"d check yours out too (ie remove the coffee ground bin and you can see the spout. If it is clogged uplug the machine and take a tooth pick and un clogg it. Don't jam the tooth pick in there to deep you don't want it to get shuved into the grinder wheels.

Cuisinart DBM-8 coffee grinder started by itself.


Mine did it as well. I had an electrician out to check out the outlet. He replaced the outlet, but it still has done it. It freaks me out, so I unplug it after use.

Unlike many appliance makers Cuisinart does not have an on-line search function for service centers. If they could not name one you might try contacting some small appliance repair shops; if not able to help they may be able to direct you.

Is it possible to get a replacement bean hopper? My machine tipped over, and the plastic tube attaching the hopper to the base is broken.


Yes, you can purchase just the hopper assembly for around $10 directly from Cuisinart. Here's a link to their web site and the parts page for grinders.

http://www.cuisinart.com/parts/coffee_bar/dbm-8.html

I would also give them a call, as they are pretty well known for excellent customer service and you might get the replacement part for free, if you're still within the warranty or close to it. Give them a call using their contact page, as I'm not sure if you're in the USA or somewhere else in the world.

US Customers can call 1-800-726-0190

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a 12 cup cusinart grind & brew. The hopper is not working


You may have to clean the grinder....even more. That happened to me once. First I cleaned out the coffeemaker with the brush, and "dug" out more coffee, then I used this product which you can find on Amazon: "Urnex Grindz Coffee Grinder Cleaner - Urnex 17-GRINDZ12-40." It's expensive, but it really worked well.

Cuisinart burr grind and brew coffee maker


The hopper between the burr grinder and where coffee chutes into the filter is jammed with coffee powder...

First, take out the filter holder and carafe, and place a freash empty filter on the pot base to catch stuff.

Next, take out the beans holder and look for the release lever in the lower left section. Sliding it to the left slides open the door, where you'll probably find loads of powder. You can poke your finger through to get the majority, then use the cleaning brush to get it really clean.

Thanks what fixed mine! (I notice I have to do this about once every few months.)

Cuisinart grinder wobbles


The model that you have is Costco's equivalent of the DBM-8 - the parts are exactly the same, so enter "DBM-8" as your model # on the Cuisinart website for parts.
